Made in America!

Preparation for winter in the food department is important.

To some it's having the canning finished and the pantry bulging with homegrown goodies. Others bake and bake and freeze the good stuff. Many spread homemade preserves on warm buttered toast, remembering the fruit they picked from their little orchards.

I own miniature horses and a donkey so the "comfort food" for my guys is hay. Nothin' says lovin' more than having yummy fine-stemmed second cutting timothy stacked in the barn for the winter. Yum...



I picked up some of my hay last weekend and had to smile when I off loaded the 3-string bales of pale green gorgeous-ness.

I know the man who baled my hay. His name's Ken and he's a burly kind of guy...the kind of guy you'd see doing a guest appearance on "Dirty Jobs". He'd toss the 120 pound bales like pieces of firewood and not break a sweat. He'd grin and ask if you needed help loading your truck and then have eighteen bales stacked before you finished grunting and dragging your two bales into place.

But I didn't know he was so patriotic. He took extra time when he baled his hay and made a statement.

Thanks Ken --- I feel the same way!

I know nothing about baling hay, but I think patriotic hay probably tastes much better than hay wraspped with plain twine!

You've gotta love a hayman with a patriotic heart.
